Professional Service

The installation, maintenance and reparations are done by HydroSolution partners.

These partners, like Entreprises MST, are specialists in air conditioning and heating. Their technicians include refrigeration engineers and certified electricians. The installation of your device is done following the strict norms of the manufacturer for optimal performance.

Foolproof Guarantees

Fujitsu heat pumps have a guarantee of 12 years on parts and 10 years on labour. However, by opting for a rental, any repairs are free of charge.

Every three years, an inspection is done as well as preventive maintenance. During this maintenance, the filters are cleaned thoroughly along with the exterior unit. Here again, this maintenance is free of charge.

The rental contract lasts for 12 years. During your heat pump’s 12th year of life, a technician will inspect the exterior unit to determine whether your device should be replaced. If this is the case, it will be replaced without any additional costs.

What if You Don’t Own a Home?

Are you renting but would love to benefit from the comfort and the savings of a heat pump? We recommend you come to an agreement with the owner and get his authorization.

Determining the Correct Amount of BTUs

What is a BTU? BTU is a unit of measure for energy.

How to determine the number of necessary BTUs for the optimal functioning of your heat pump? Calculate the area (length x width) of the space you want to heat or air condition. This can be a room or a floor if your house has an open-space concept. Multiply your total by 10, then round up to the highest number.

For example:

28 pi x 40 pi = 1,120 sq. ft

1120 x 10 = 11,200

11,200 rounded up = 12,000

Number of required BTU = 12,000

The general rule is 12,000 BTU by 1,000 sq. ft.

The Importance of Determining the Number of Appropriate BTUs for Your House

Some may think that by taking the most powerful system, they’ll air-condition and heat their house without any problem. However, some elements must be considered:

The more powerful a device is, the more expensive it will be to rent or buy.

A device that is too powerful will constantly be stopping and restarting, which will lead to premature wear of your system and will reduce its lifespan.

In air conditioning mode, a heat pump dries the air while air conditioning it. However, with a system that is too powerful, the air will be air-conditioned in the blink of an eye, but the device will not have had time to dry it. As a result, you will end up with ambient air that is cold and humid; the opposite of comfort.
